Vintage Rustic Garden Wedding Cupcakes

These cupcakes were part of a dessert buffet that I did for a recent wedding. The wedding was on a farm, and the couple wanted everything to be rustic and homey, yet elegant. I decided on an elegant version of an Americana garden party as my inspiration. Lots of gumpaste flowers, hints of red white & blue, rustic display pieces using vintage fruit crates,wooden cupcake stands, & milk glass. Vintage tin cans & mason jars as flower vases & serving pieces. The cupcakes were sweet n salty chocolate with chocolate ganache frosting, and vanilla buttermilk with almond buttercream. Delish! The sugar flowers were inspired by the bride's bouquet, and included ranunculus, peonies, sunflowers, lily of the valley, hydrangeas, tulip buds, filler flowers, dusty miller, and lamb's ear leaves. I also made the rest of the desserts for the dessert buffet, which included mini rustic fruit pies (blueberry, cherry, apple), mini lemon meringue tarts, mini lemon bite cookies, gourmet lollipops, chocolate mousse shots in miniature mason jars, and homemade jam as favors for the guests. I think everything turned out lovely, but I would love to hear all your thoughts! Please see my other pictures of the coordinating wedding cake. Thanks!
